For Bitcoin, the maximum transaction rate is something like four transactions a second, *globally*. And each transaction burns as much electricity as an American home does in four weeks.

we're back up! migrations failed while i was updating mastodon so i had to run the tootctl dedup tool and recreate all indices in postgres database

there are some issues with postgres and libc's collation options: docs.joinmastodon.org/admin/tr

seems that the queue is processing just fine now that I switched it to one process per type

"Cryptocurrency is one of the worst inventions of the 21st century. [...] It has failed to be a useful currency, invented a new class of internet abuse, further enriched the rich, wasted staggering amounts of electricity, hastened climate change, ruined hundreds of otherwise promising projects, provided a climate for hundreds of scams to flourish, created shortages and price hikes for consumer hardware, and injected perverse incentives into technology everywhere. Fuck cryptocurrency."

Cryptocurrency is literally like an eight-year-old's concept of an evil businessman. He just plugs his pollution machine in and gets money for it. It doesn't make anything, it just. Pollutes. And makes money. Like a fucking Captain Planet villain

got a little bit more log info on the backed up queues on here, looks like it was stuck on connecting to redis which is on localhost of the same machine. any ideas why that would be? it's processing stuff now that i restarted redis and the sidekiq service

ok, everything is looking good, queues are all cleared out now

Not sure what caused it but the queue got backed up at some point yesterday and should be processing now. Will probably take a while to catch up

tilde.zone updated to match upstream glitch-soc

Difficult to quantify what an ecological disaster Bitcoin is, but this comes close.
